About Us

Our Story

In 2008, Jo Tarry, the amazing mother of 2 wonderful girls, died suddenly and unexpectedly. As a family, this was a blow so large we never thought we would recover, but we were fortunate to live in an area where outstanding charitable support for grieving children was available.

The difference this support made to the girls and to my family was incalculable. It’s in Jo’s memory that Josephine’s Star was born to bring this support to the children and young people of Somerset, to help them and their families just as we were helped, I can think of no better legacy for Jo.
